Planning a Proposal this February 29th?

It’s an old Irish folk tale that St. Patrick granted St. Brigit’s request to allow women to propose every leap day and then had to quickly spurn a proposal from the woman herself. We must confess we like a girl gumption.

However, there is the question of how to translate this age-old legend into modern day. So you want to turn the tables and propose to your loved one, but you already know that a romantic setting, brimming with sentiment, flowers and poetic flourishes can end up making the situation feel awkward and false. Plus it’s a leap year, you have to give the proposal a special twist that befits the day. So how do you go about it without it feeling as tacky as chewing gum stuck to your shoe?

Marry me at no 25

We reckon No. 25 Fitzwilliam Place has the right idea. They know the best way to create an amorous atmosphere without the naff is simple – a gorgeous venue, relaxed ambience, champagne and good food. Ahem to that! And they’re giving one lucky couple the opportunity to win the perfect moment. No. 25 Fitzwilliam Place are making their luxurious?townhouse available to one loved-up pair, with a romantic candle-lit champagne dinner for two, cooked by the head chef and served by a private butler.

?This is a very special prize and one that we think befits a special lifetime moment,? says Denise Bevan, events manager at No. 25.? ?We are experts at hosting all types of events and we would be particularly honoured to host a happy couple on such a joyous occasion.?

The competition is open to anyone who intends to propose to their partner on the Leap Day, to enter simply visit www.25fitzwilliamplace.ie/marryme, fill in the entry form and explain why you want to propose to your loved one at No. 25 Fitzwilliam Place.

Now g’wan ya good thing and get planning!
